DescriptionJack Sparling Sick Magazine Back Cover Painting Original Art (Charlton, 1977). Sick lives up to its name on this back cover gag (that lives up to the term "gag"). The magazine had a long-running back cover gag of works of art coming to life in a museum. This piece is a parody of the N. C. Wyeth painting "At The Helm". Sick magazine was favored by fans who couldn't get MAD magazine or even Cracked. Sparling signed and dated this piece in the "picture frame". His long career included work for Harvey, Charlton, DC, Gold Key, and Dell. Produced in acrylic paint on 15" x 22" illustration. There is corner wear and dings, along with some paint flecks (one near the characters hand), and a stain in the "black area" where the character had been in the painting. Overall in Very Good condition.
